I consistently find myself late to any and all knitting trends. I mean I knit my first fade only this year and how long has that been around? I have been finding myself attracted to some boxy garments lately. I have been working on my post-PB baby weight loss and I find myself comfortable and pleased with a skinny pant, boxy shirt or sweater and a cute pair of shoes look.
So I decided to try knitting Worsted Boxy by Joji Locatelli in some Berroco Vintage from DEEP DEEP stash. My line of thinking is:
- This yarn has tried to be several things and it has never quite worked. So why not a comfy sweatshirt style neutral color garment?
- I’ll get this sweater quantity out of my stash for good if I finish this
- A worsted sweater should go faster than the fingering weight boxy
- If I finish it and it look hideous or the color doesn’t favor me…I’ll find it a good home somewhere!
I’m knitting the medium size in the pattern. It won’t give me quite the full ease that Joji calls for but enough ease that it fit loosely but still be flattering. I have managed to cast on the 200+ stitches WITHOUT TWISTING and I have started the ribbing. Based on reading other notes I think I’m going to double the ribbing called for in the pattern to prevent the hem from rolling. Wish me luck!
